Having produced fashion shows for audiences of 100 to 5,000, I designed new approaches to communicate fashion and promote diversity. My fashion presentations have been showcased at Toronto Fashion Week and Buddies & Bad Times Theatre.

Following five years of producing fashion shows, I then used my design approach to support the development and execution of research projects—ranging from artisanal fashion to men’s consumer behavior to global politics—in Toronto and New York City.

I have graduated with a B.Des. (Hons.) from Ryerson University, and I’m currently completing my final year of my MSc. in Strategic Design and Management at Parsons The New School for Design.
